With actors Peter O’Toole and Katherine Hepburn at the heights of their
careers, gripping first feature film appearances from Anthony Hopkins
and Timothy Dalton and a wickedly brilliant script, Anthony Harvey’s
1968 big screen adaptation of the stage play The Lion in Winter could
quite easily have supported an understated score.
Appointing John Barry to composing duties was a surprising choice,
given that he was mostly known for his James Bond scores and jazz band
recordings at this time, but his friendship with director Harvey allowed
him the opportunity to create a dark, menacing and gothic score that
would change the public’s impression of him forever.
Created from the original manuscript, this release offers a rare opportunity to study film music in its authentic, original orchestration and arrangement. An opportunity not to be missed!
